The Ultimate Insight Into Dirk Nowitzki?

It's just about common knowledge that Dirk Nowitzki is far more open and relaxed with Germans than he is talking with reporters etc. here in America.  A great example of that was this interview for a German newspaper that Dirk did before the season started.  It's kind of fascinating to see Dirk like this, which is why I was ecstatic to see someone upload the majority of a German TV show featuring Dirk to YouTube this weekend.  Basically, some sort of German musician/celebrity named Till Bonner spends an evening in Dallas with Dirk.

Despite this being about four or five years old, it provides some remarkable insight -- particularly since Dirk had no reason to expect anyone in America to see it.  Why else would he call Scottie Pippen an "arrogant ass"? Or say "there is very little going on in Dallas".

There is also some amusing stuff, like Dirk trying to play the trumpet, new video of Dirk and Steve Nash singing their infamous Simon song, and drinks with Mark Cuban at Terillis.

Here are the the links to incomplete series. I highly recommend setting aside an hour to watch the whole thing.
